"All the music your favorite bands ripped off."
The Bread and Butter Band is a high-energy Chicago quintet playing classic and original rock, blues and soul music. The band features Dave Smith on guitar, Jim Fujimoto on bass, Steve Strunk on drums and vocals, Vince Varco on keyboards and Peter Cunningham on guitar and vocals. As one fan described it, “Bread and Butter Band plays all the music your favorite bands ripped off.” Cunningham and Varco first played together in the reggae scene with Aozzie Gregory and the Enforcers and later teamed up with drummer Hamid Drake, bassist Joe Thomas and guitarist Steve Gerlach to form an original rock band called Animal Farm, which released one album of original songs. Dave Smith plays with a variety of local blues-soul outfits including Rocking Billy and Big Sweaty Men. Jim Fujimoto and Steve Strunk have played with too many people to name. Their musical philosophy is simple: have fun, make people happy and don't leave the dancers hanging.
